Buffalo Bills: Predicting the 53-man roster after the 2021 NFL Draft
Wide Receiver (6)
Stefon Diggs, Emmanuel Sanders, Cole Beasley, Gabriel Davis, Isaiah McKenzie, Marquez Stevenson
This is going to be one of the positions that the coaching staff is going to have to make some of their toughest decision as they cut the roster down. The reason is that there are upwards of nine wide receivers that could make a case for a spot on the 53-man roster and it wouldn’t be surprising if Isaiah Hodgins, Jake Kumerow, and Duke Williams found their way onto the roster.
It remains to be seen if they will keep five or six wide receivers this year but with how much the Bills played in three and four wide receiver sets, having six on the roster makes sense. When looking at the depth chart the first five seem to be fairly certain to be locks and the sixth spot is the one that will be up for grabs.
I believe Marquez Stevenson will ultimately win the job because he has great speed but also because he will be the team’s starting returner this year.
